I SWEAR I had posted this somewhere before but now I can’t find it, so I’m posting this here. A quick overview of how I was going to go full Scottish brogue with the character who appears in Fade chapter 40.
SUPER SUPER SUPER IMPORTANT NOTE!! THE BIGGEST SPOILERS EVER ARE BENEATH THIS CUT!! DO NOT READ IF YOU HAVE NOT READ THROUGH FADE CHAPTER 41!!!!
Did I post this one already? If not, I’m posting it now because I need to reference it for a joke on tumblr. Click on it to go fullscreen.
Behind a cut for MAJOR FADE SPOILER
The votes are in! By popular demand, Hot Mess won out over Under Covers… but to thank the people who gave feedback (and to say sorry to the Under Cover voters) I made this.
I kept having problems with the really long pictures I used to do not showing up properly so I split this one into 3 pages. Hopefully that helps.
Study Date Boyd should probably stop trying to get Hot Mess and Forever Emo to ever do anything, tbh…
PS: Help me decide–I still need names! Right now it’s:
- Study Date Boyd
- Hot Mess Boyd (or Undercovers Boyd or Under Covers Boyd)
- Forever Emo Boyd (or Kill Me Now Boyd, Suicide Alley Boyd, Mo’ Emo Boyd, or…??)
- NO IDEA on our Fade friend. I just call him Srsface for now but he needs a legit name. I’m also trying to decide if I should have the black line show or not on him, because that’s technically a spoiler for people who aren’t through the series. That’s why one page he has it and the other he doesn’t… I wanted to see which looked better. Thoughts?
I’ve been sadsauce lately so I’m resurrecting WIP Files. This pic is from me migrating Julian Files to Scrivener to work on it further.
Currently, Julian Files is 72,405 words. I don’t know how long it will end up being in the end, but I’m going to guess at least 100,000, and possibly closer to 150,000. That will depend largely on how much I go into the lives of the Beaulieus and Julian or if I start being much more strict about only following the main plot. The former is more fun so that may be what I end up doing.
In 2013 on our Santino & Ais Goodreads group, I had gotten a question regarding Boyd and his looks and why he might have chosen to do certain things in Fade. I realized today that it’s too difficult to direct-link to that individual comment, and I didn’t want to forget or lose the more in-depth answer.
The question and answer are both behind a cut below due to major spoilers for Fade.
(By the way, I did answer the Kassian part of her question later too and at first I was going to just leave that alone and potentially put it in another post, but in rereading my initial answer I remembered that on Lorraine’s request I had followed up with a longer answer, mixing in the Kassian part. So I just did both in this post. It makes it really long but if you’re interested in Boyd’s motivations or psychology, you might enjoy this.)
I just found this randomly super detailed note in a really old file I hadn’t touched in years. I don’t know if it’s of interest to anyone, but this is what I had.
owns a 2009 Audi A4 Saloon, exterior color phantom black, pearl effect, w/ black interior with milano leather, engine SE 3.2 FSI 265 PS 6 speed manual transmission
Note: contains Bang & Olufsen sound system designed specifically for A4, w/ surround-sound reproduction w/ dynamic-noise compensation, 14 high-performance loudspeakers (505 watt) and 10-channel amplifier. BLAIR may be interested in this and freak over it (check reviews on quality of sound — even if crappy sounding, he’d be interested in the idea of the system made specifically for that)
